The 2020 Canyon is a pickup truck from GMC that comes with its own set of virtues, packed within its age old design that the automaker didn’t feel like changing. On the contrary GMC describes its flagship pickup model to be a no-nonsense one that still swims ahead of its stiff competitors.
What is Packed for 2020
When we asked the Idaho Falls GMC dealer showroom staff about the 2020 year edition of the GMC Canyon, they informed us, that there are few minimal changes like an optional tailgate with special power-locking feature, an alert system for the tire fill that will automatically honk the horn whenever a tire reaches at its optimal air pressure, and most importantly an updated infotainment system with 8.0-inch touchscreen that will display the navigation as well as other important information regarding the vehicle and the drive but it is only an option offered on higher trims.
The year 2020 continues the other configurations like a fleet-oriented SL trim to the most opulent Denali models through which the GMC Canyon exhibits its capacity of maintaining a wide range of truck personalities.
The All-Terrain trim that is known for its off-road drive acumen, is available with an extended- or crew-cab body. The 2020 GMC Canyon as a midsize pickup truck can be ordered in two different bed lengths. The lineup again bifurcates into two gasoline engine options and a turbodiesel, and the choices to be driven with two- and four-wheels. All these proves the point that even now the 2020 GMC Canyon stands as one of the most versatile pickup trucks regardless of the size you opt for.
Power and Drive Components
As mentioned earlier, the 2020 GMC Canyon can be ordered from a wide range of powertrain choices. At the base, it shows a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that can make 200 horsepower. As you step higher in price, you get an optional 3.6-liter V-6 engine that adds on 108 of more ponies and a refined performance.
Next comes an expensive 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission making 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque, with a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds. This is a powerplant that delivers even more smoother roll, with an option to be ordered as an extended cab and crew cabs.
Drives, Rides and Maneuvering
When we took a test drive with the 2020 GMC Canyon at the GMC dealer Idaho Falls showroom we got back with the impression that it is one of those cool pickup trucks that always stay quiet and composed on the diverse road surfaces. Things go especially north when you opt for the higher trims that are trimmed with high end luxuries through impressive standard features and an excellent infotainment system.
To sum up all we can say is that in the face of such stiff competition, the 2020 GMC Canyon comes out as one of the strongest pickup options that is always on a mission to serve all your business transportation purposes with equal expertise.
